took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the northeast with sandy. when we started with a big calendar ticking down the job reports and the one right before the election, there was some analysis this would be big. it's not. >> one thing th
saidly do them both. romney said repeatedly even when i interviewed him he doesn't want to talk about what deduct shunts he would scale back or he limb nana, eliminate because that should be done in the open with congress. it is a ridiculous position because then you say well i am not going to say anything i will do because it should all be negotiated in congress in the light of day. voters need to know what kind of deductions will he scale back and david axelrod said the same thing to me in a television interview about social security he said this is not the time to talk about social security. >> rose: on bowles-simpson they don't really lay out what they disagree with bowles-simpson. they want a gas tax, don't want a gas tax. >> they think the best thing to do, both of them not be specific and somehow they get enough of a mandate to beat the opponent. >> if you are not bold can you ever argue and have a mandate. >> i think the president will have a mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy if he wins and i think governor romney will try to get rid of obama care if he wins and that is ab
now, close obama win, close romney win or big romney win and if you talk to some republicans, both connected to the campaign and one step away from the center of the campaign they are starting to talk about the possibility and you see in the republicans movement into pennsylvania, minnesota, and perhaps michigan the possibility that they are not just trying to hedge their bets or trying to expand the map out of desperation but a real belief this thing could be bigger, an oregon polls that show the shows the race close, certainly closer than the president won four years ago i think the momentum is with romney and the obama people are not just spinning when they say, look, out of that first debate in denver he doesn't have momentum where he overwhelmed us he brought home the base be does president's in number has not chanced by any means but pretty pistol hid and that means governor romney has upward momentum or has had it, maybe that has stalled we don't really though but the president does not have bad momentum he is not collapsing in any way, i think that the momentum in this race
do you think will win and clearly governor romney has made progress both in favorable and unfavorable rating and in who do you any is going to win? the more people think the president is going to win, but depending on which poll you look at the gap narrowed dramatically, you must have that be relatively narrow in order to win and that is a sign of momentum and it takes a lot of pressure off the campaign in boston. >> rose: these things have come out of these kinds of polls, number one, who do you think will make the best leader, governor romney, had you been 2, who do you think will handle the economy better? governor romney. number 3, who do you think cares more about you? >> president obama. >> right. >> rose: must be 4 who is better in foreign policy? >> president obama. >> rose: right. >> what would you add to that? those are the basic kind of -- >> well there is a different variations of cares about people, who understands the middle class. i thought all along, governor romney on those questions, those character and trade questions, governor romney needed to do three things. on
focus on women voters. >> 13% of the ads from both campaigns featured the voices of women. mitt romney's campaign tries to show he understands women's issues in this ad. >> he totally gets working women. >> while president barack obama's campaign ad wants to show just the opposite. >> it's a scary time to be a woman. mitt romney is just so out of touch. >> many of the ads in both campaigns are negative in tone, with 90% of pro-obama ads using an image of mitt romney. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> they always portray him in a suit and tie which is less bad than putting him in a tuxedo. but the opposite's also the case on the romney ads. typically in the romney ads you see him in jeans and his blue oxford shirt trying to look a little more casual. >> 75% of pro-romney ads show images of president obama. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> republicans use sad, depressed faces in 21% of their ads, mostly to illustrate unemployment. democrats only use that tactic in 1% of their ads. but democrats went heavy on the elderly, using elderly voices or images in 38% of
. >> with both campaigns hitting their message hard. >> mitt romney's not the solution. he's the problem. >> drastically different messages but with some notable similarities. the "new york times" the campaign media analysis group at kantar media studied 119 presidential campaign ads that aired nearly 180,000 times in october. looking for similarities in images, themes and props. >> the campaigns have a tremendous number of ads in rotation and there's a special focus on women voters. >> 13% of the ads from both campaigns featured the voices of women. mitt romney's campaign tries to show he understands women's issues in this ad. >> he totally gets working women. >> while president barack obama's campaign ad wants to show just the opposite. >> it's a scary time to be a woman. mitt romney is just so out of touch. >> many of the ads in both campaigns are negative in tone, with 90% of pro-obama ads using an image of mitt romney. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> they always portray him in a suit and tie which is less bad than putting him in a tuxedo. but the opposite's also the case o
on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
to the obama presidency, and now that he and romney have come together in both the national and these tight swing state polls you see no lift at all in the obama camp pain, -- campaign. >> here's the argue. they make. he is still ahead in ohio and wisconsin, still ahead in what they call their fire wall. and even if you give romney all the swing states that they think they're going to win -- virginia, north carolina, florida -- that still only gets him to 248. throw the colorado, 257 electoral votes, needs 2 70 to win. >> couple things about the firewall. you have to question, is obama really ahead in ohio when everyone seems to acknowledge romney's big advantage among independents? this is true of a bunch of swing states. there's a question about who is really ahead. but the other issue is, this is a well-known incumbent late in the race. he is probably persuaded most of the people he is going persuade and his campaign speeches are telling you that. it's a fiercely partisan ideological message he is driving. he is not talking to independents. >> let's get a clip of that. we want to give yo
. no motorcades there, folks. that means both romney, who is in ohio and iowa today, and the president will probably end up spending more of their time in the midwest than they had planned with possible stops in colorado and florida. second, barring problems with federal disaster response, the president is likely to have a messaging advantage, if you will, as he gets to run are the government. he does run the government. he is the president. he simply has to do his job. by comparison in the next four days, hurricane sandy will replace mitt romney, does he have momentum or not story as the lead of nearly every swing state newspaper and newscast. the lead story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
romney pulled ahead 48-47. and fox news battle ground shows the race is close in ohio. and romney has pulled within three points of the president. that has both candidates making a major push for the women and undied -- undecided voters. joining us now. the black helicopterers. dick morris, thank you for joining us today. >> good to be here uma. i noticed something interesting in the report from the obama speech. is that he's now using the flip noper issue against romney. the history of that was that the obama staff people wanted to use it. but according to the new york times story, clinton, former president clinton said no, it am not work. hit him on being too conservative and they followed his advice and now they are back tracking and trying to use the flip flopper issue again. it is very systematic of the lack of a message for obama. here nine days before the election. they are changing the negative message on romney having spent 7 months talking about other stuff. >> pointing out 10 days a way. and the porls are tightening up. when it comes to the swing states, you can antiwin wit
between comforting and campaigning. on wednesday both president obama and governor mitt romney urged the country to try and come together. >> we're going to have a lot of work to do. i don't want anybody to feel that somehow this is all going to get cleaned up overnight. but what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> we also have full hearts because we know our fellow americans in some parts of our country are struggling through tough times with the hurricane that hit the atlantic coast. when there are challenges we come together and help one another and that help is needed now. >> both men head back out on the campaign trail today. the campaign trail. a poll shows mr. obama leading. mr. obama leading romney among aceely voters. in september that poll found the and new je critics tied. new jersey's governor is facing christi criticism from other hepublicans. theydnesday we saw christie join the president on his helicopter. stor aboen to what he said about i
candidate who could've lost to claire mccaskill. mitt romney is going to win 55% in missouri this year. i think any respectable republican who did not put both feet in his mouth would have carried that race. we now think claire mccaskill has a lead to a large enough to survive the romney landslide in missouri. also, there is a libertarian on the ballot there. that percentage will surprise you. that's where a lot of republicans who will not support todd akin and will not support claire mccaskill will go, i think. that should enable claire mccaskill to hold received another six years. host: when you look at virginia, what will you be watching on election night? guest: i want to see -- you always want the first votes to come in. and it varies from year to year. they come in from different places, so you have to know the history of each city and county and even increasing st -- and even the precincts, to know the results. i will look at the critical swing counties in northern virginia, loudoun county and prince william county. i will be looking at chesterfield, richmond, enreico. i want to se
pencesy voters from low propensity voters. both campaigns have a scale. romney campaign is 0 to 4. if you were al sharpton you would be 0, ann romney a 4. obama campaign has a 1 to 5. rush limbaugh would be 1, michelle obama would be 5. if you lay these over in ohio, what the republicans believe the obama campaign has done is banked a lot of their high propensity vote who were going to show up anyway. what they're trying to do is call the low propensity voters in ohio and turn out a hire percentage of their high propensity voters on election day. the obama campaign acknowledges some of the folks banking now are probably closer to the high propensity scale. they do believe there'll be enough of a firewall particularly in northern ohio to get that state across the finish line. >> shira, there's a new tampa bay times, bay news, "miami herald" poll mitt romney leading by 6 points. however our poll, the nbc marist poll shows the president leading by two. we're all scratching our heads here. what do you make of these polls and the difference between them? >> well, it's obvious that both campaig
debate, independent voters have continued to move to governor romney, and independent voters are, of course, the deciders. i believe that the president has to do a little better both in the swing states and nationally. as an incumbent, if you don't support him now or you're undecide, you're not likely to get those voters on election day. >> that's wrong. i mean, nate silver who modeled all of this, and who i think has done a pretty good job of this, estimates of the undecided voters in the swing states right now, slightly over 50% are probably likely in the end those to vote for the president. if you look at virginia, bob, this new poll the "washington post" has in virginia, the gender gap has opened up again. the problem we have is there are so many polls. we are living in a poll-littered universe that we tend to lose sight of the fundamentals. the fundamentals are the president has a structural advantage? the battleground states. needs to carry far fewer of them as governor romney, has many more route to 270. and secondly, he does have a superior organization on the ground that
? this is questions we hope to get to austan and doug, both of them as we watch mitt romney take to the stage in wisconsin. should mention a busy day for mitt romney. a little later on today he has another rally. he will be joined by big names in the republican party. condoleezza rice for example will be with him. bobby jindal, marco rubio, lindsey graham. they will all be at a rally tonight in ohio. first in wisconsin, the speech by mitt romney that his campaign is calling his closing argument for him four days before election day. let's take a listen. >> four more days! four more days!. >> thank you so much. you got that one right by the way, you have got that absolutely right, four more days. this is a, oh, great experience to be here with you today. this is so exciting. [cheering]. what a great state, what a great welcome. by the way this state will help me become the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] i want to thank, i want to thank governor walker for that extraordinary introduction. what a great governor you have here. you're very lucky. that took some work. [c
of "esquire" magazine. both of you gentlemen welcome back inside "the war room." >> good evening, governor. >> hello, governor. how are you? >> jennifer: i am great. charlie let me start with you. how it is that mitt romney can continue to affiliation himself with people who make inane comments like those. >> first of all the jesuate fathers thought me [ inaudible ] he is silent gives consent. why has he gotten away with it -- >> jennifer: why hasn't he said anything at all. >> because he doesn't have to. he has gotten away with everything else. i wish i had a nickel for every pundit who told me last february, oh, he has got to release the tax returns. guess what he hasn't released the tax returns and he is not going to do the next ten days. they telegraph the etch-a-sketch punch six months ago. they said he was going to start lying. and he started right on schedule. and he has gotten away with it. so why wouldn't he get away with chloroforming the crypt keeper and bringing john sununu back. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: i don't know that you can top that karl so i'm going t
about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in 2008 when this bragging that we get every year was being done by a john mccain republican surrogate named mitt romney. >> inside a campaign, what do you get on the inside that we don't get on the outside because you're doing your own polling? >> you see the widest array of polls. you look at mason dixon that cake out yesterday. you take that apart, it's close to the internal polls. it shows that john mccain is leading in the states that he's got to lead in. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we have a good sh
not going to go away any time soon. steve? >> steve: both president obama and mitt romney are barn storming the battle ground state of ho had in these final days. who will win that state? let's talk to two guys who think they know. state's attorney general and the state's former governor, gentlemen, thank you for joining us. >> good morning. >> steve: mr. attorney general, let's start with you. your state is lucky that it's got unemployment slightly lower than the national average. who do people in ohio credit for that? do they credit john kasich, the republican governor, or do they credit barak obama, the democratic president? >> well, in the polls that i have seen, most recent polls by a big margin, they give the governor credit. and i think that's absolutely correct. he came in, very tough situation. he's dealt with the taxes, taking down regulations, created a better business climate in the state. i think people understand that. what we feel in ohio is people are just not particularly happy with president obama. i think this race really got reset in ohio after the first debate. the obam
back to the 2008 cycle, both senator obama at the time and gov. romney, spending time with the editorial board. we have talked to the candidates. we have really explore the issues. is our endorsement matter? i think it does. it has been a century at least since we have endorsed a presidential candidate. it is part of our tradition. politics is indeed dna of the des moines register. we take very seriously the first in the nation status as a caucus state. we take seriously the ability to affect candidates that are not on the radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. -very informal opportunity to st down over coffee to talk about what is in front of us. what is the position for that. i do think our endorsement matters. we probably spent a lot of time doing diligence and being thoughtful in all of our conversations, particularly the final one to support governor mitt romney. host: we are talking with the editor of the des moines register. the me ask you about the process. you had a telephone conversation that ran 30 minutes with the president. the white house said it
. tonight the presidential campaign with just eight days left sits at a stand still with both president obama and governor romney canceling their events for tonight and tomorrow night. here to answer some of the political questions this storm brings to us is john nickel, washington correspondent for the nation. the president of the united states has a big job, especially when you have fema working for you. he has all the powers of incumbency and all the powers to display how good an executive he is. romney, on the sidelines, the breaks of the game. >> it puts an awful lot on hold. people probably could never have imagined that a storm on the east coast of the united states would be canceling events in wisconsin and ohio, scrambling events just this afternoon in davenport, iowa. the fact of the matter is over the next two days barack obama and mitt romney and also paul ryan have canceled events as far away as colorado. not just because of concerns about the storm surge, but also because of concerns about the image. this is for better or worse an image game now, and nobody wants to be see
of the storm on the east coast, both candidates later in the week. governor mitt romney was here last week in the rally at but rocks that drew 9000 people. thousands were turned away. the following day, president obama held a rally in denver and drew crowds of up to 16,000. the governor this because deserve an amphitheater that has the capacity of 18,000. the president and his campaign were looking to go to boulder to hold a rally. they are try to turn out a lot of voters for the optics. >> president obama expected here at the university of colorado shortly. he is on the campaign trail today after spending the first part of the week dealing with relief efforts of hurricane sandy. we will take a closer look at ohio as a battleground state. president obama with the ohio, a rally at the frankfurt county could hilliard. we will have that live for you at 10:20 eastern. first lady michele obama will travel to virginia where she will speak at a campaign rally at virginia state university in petersburg, virginia. ♪ ♪ >> this is president obama's third campaign rally. he also held one in wiscon
. >> i've intuitively believed that mitt romney is a moderate. he feels like a mort, and i think he had to go to the right in order to win the primary. by the way, some of it's tonal, right? both sides conflate ylg with -- >> when he was saying i was a severely -- now he's revertsing to what he feels more comfortable with. i think that's right. >> absolutely. >> doesn't that raise questions of credibility about what he was doing for those two years? and isn't it fair for journalists to say, well, exactly which president romney would we be getting? >> i think it's entirely fair, but i don't think it's going to move the public. i think that going back to the whole -- >> why would voters not care if a guy is all over the map? you say old news. >> i think it's old news, and i think that people intuitively believe that mitt romney is a moderate. i think that when he showed up -- let's go back to 1980. inkeep -- we like it bring up ronald reagan if you're a conservative. they wanted to cast him as this bellico bellicose, crazy right winger. he shows up, he's like animal, sen -- likeable, sens
